Laughtercise is one of many online wellbeing lessons we offer at My Online Schooling, where the focus is humour, health and harnessing happiness. Laughter is the best medicine, as it gives our brains and bodies a much needed boost. It relaxes us from the inside out, giving us a feel-good attitude to help send our worries away.
To celebrate the success of Laughtercise at MOS, we wanted to hear what our pupils thought about these one of a kind wellness lessons. In this blog we’ll discuss the success of Laughtercise, and why our pupils love it so much!
The Magic of Laughter - Quick Facts:
- We laugh with our whole bodies, so we use up a lot of energy
- It's not only humans that laugh; for instance, chimpanzees and rats have a sense of humour too!
- Laughter lowers our stress levels, which keeps our hearts healthy
- We bond and communicate through laughter
Laughtercise at My Online Schooling
School can be stressful at any age, so its important that we find ways to ease our anxieties. In these group sessions, our junior pupils stay connected with humour and giggles. They tell stories through creative movements and sounds. All seriousness must be left at the door, so their imaginations can run wild. High spirits and excitement is just what they need when there's a busy day of studying ahead!
With the help of our instructors, Aaron Betesta and Harriet Brady-Jackson, our Laughercise pupils break up their week with a bit of a wiggle and a dance - there’s chuckling, sweating and silliness all around.
